Education is one of the most important parts of any child’s life. It is one of the rights that are mentioned in the constitution of India. Unfortunately, there are a lot of kids who work with their poor parents and earn the money to survive.
These kids do not have the access to the basic education system. There are a lot of NGOs who are working to educate them but it is still not enough.
The Railway Police in Gaya has found an innovative way to spread the awareness about education. They talked to the families living near the railway station in a slum area and requested them to send their kids to the station so that they can study.
Praveen Kumar, who is a policeman, started this initiative and now he teaches a lot of kids at the station.
More policemen are joining
The best part of the initiative is that he is not alone. The other policemen also come forward to help when he needs an assistant. The kids of the rag-pickers have fallen in love with their teacher and regularly attend the classes.
The senior officials have also praised the initiative and asked Praveen Kumar to continue classes and ask if any support is required.
The initiative is proving to be a life-changing platform for the kids. Suman, who regularly attends the classes, wants to complete the studies and join police force so that she can help the people in need.
We need more policemen like Praveen who are not afraid of taking steps to bring change in the country.
